This red bellied woodpecker has figured out how to use my bird feeder even though it is actually designed for smaller birds. In this photo, a faint red patch on its belly, which is usually concealed by surrounding feathers, is now exposed. This is a male bird, as you can see by its red forehead, nape and crown. I never grow tired of gazing at the striking colors of the amazing creature!
Inspired by the daily post one-word prompt: exposed
